Manipur’s Loktak Lake to Have Country’s First Floating Elementary School
Loktak lake, country’s biggest freshwater lake has the first floating elementary school in the country. This was inaugurated at Langolsabi Leikai of Champu Khangpok village in Manipur situated around 50 km from Imphal.
This lake is also known as “lifeline of Manipur” as it is really helpful and many people depend on the lake for survival.
This school was opened due to the initiative taken by the All Loktak Lake Fisherman’s Union along with an NGO named People Resources Development Association (PRDA). The main aim of this school is to provide education to illiterate adults and dropout students who became homeless in the recent evacuation of phumdis.
This school will also accommodate 2 teachers and 25 students from the community.
